Tucked away from busy streets yet centrally located, this lovely home is a relaxing hideaway with a huge .28-acre lot with the potential for an additional house plus ADU minutes from downtown Santa Cruz. Inside, two stylish columns separate the open-plan living and dining space for quickly transitioning while hosting guests, while plenty of room in both areas makes it easy for visitors to pull up a chair. The kitchen has ample storage and granite countertops, which will inspire new and old recipes. A built-in closet, a private exit, and a convenient laundry room connected to the primary bedroom are luxurious additions to the sunny and relaxing space. You can transform the two extra bedrooms with built-in wardrobes into guest bedrooms, an office, or a library. Imagine hosting a barbecue or spending a relaxing afternoon reading a book in the sun on the bright back patio overlooking the large yard dotted with thriving foliage. Famous Pacific Ave is blocks away from this home for delicious dining options from Laili to Pizza My Heart, boutique shopping such as Bookshop Santa Cruz, and entertainment such as Landmark’s Del Mar Theatre and Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History. Follow the nearby Riverwalk to the beach and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for sunbathing, swimming, and some thrill rides! Easy access onto Hwy 17/1 to Los Gatos, Monterey, or head north to explore Wilder Ranch State Park.
